heres a long answer
Look, I don’t want to drop any bombs here, but… there are only two genders.
I recognize that people born with the rare occurrence of being intersex or hermaphrodite are 1.7% of the population and a special case, but generally, there are two genders.

She also said that even though chromosomes can be viewed it does not exactly express why some may be male or female yet feel like an entirely different gender.
For that question, I approached another teacher who explained to me that gender is an experience-based thing and that it is healthier really to be a boy and still experience some feminine things, as well as to be a girl and have masculine experiences. That still did not expressly mean there are more genders, only that not everyone needs or should be at some point a football player jock who never cries or a cheerleader, preppy girl. He also said there were several mental disorders relating to gender recognized by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) and that transgender people can be
